Touro University California (in conjunction with its branch campus Touro University Nevada, which make up the Touro Western Division) has developed four Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs), of which one will be focused on each year. The ISLOs are as follows:

To exemplify Judaic values of social justice, intellectual pursuit and service to humanity, Touro University students will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Use knowledge, skills and effective communication to benefit diverse communities
  2. Collaborate across disciplines toward a common goal
  3. Think critically to make evidence-informed decisions and evaluate conclusions in a real world context
  4. Act in a professional and ethical manner

Touro University previously had eight ISLOs. After carefully reviewing the results of the first full cycle, TUC streamlined down the eight ISLOs to four in an effort to provide deeper levels of assessment. The new ISLOs took effect on July 1, 2015 with the assessment of ISLO1 conducted in the academic year 2015-2016. The first round of assessing the four ISLOs has been completed by 2018-2019. Academic programs and Student Affairs departments are assessing ISLO1 in the academic year of 2019-2020.

To ensure the assessment of Student Learning Outcomes is sustainable, meaningful, and becomes part of the institutional culture, TUC formed the Institutional Assessment Committee (IAC) in 2011. The committee provides leadership and assistance in developing and implementing university-wide assessment policies, procedures and activities.
